Flags of the Russian Federation are hoisted in all military facilities in the Crimea. Ukrainian servicemen are leaving the territory of the peninsula. Negotiations are also being carried out regarding an unimpeded withdrawal of logistics (including weapons and ships). As a result, the Russian military intervention of Ukraine has almost completely consumed the Ukrainian navy.
On 26 March, 2014, Chief of the General Staff of the Russian Armed Forces, Gen. Valeriy Gerasimov stated that Russian flags are hoisted in all 193 military units and institutions of the Ukrainian armed forces situated in the Crimean peninsula.
According to Gerasimov, all soldiers who have declared a desire to continue service in the Ukrainian armed forces, having surrendered their weapons under secure conditions, are preparing an organised departure from the Crimean peninsula.
